The mission of the Instructional Technology Department of Johnson City Schools is to encourage and support transformative uses of technology that promote student learning through best teaching practices in accordance with the Tennessee State Standards.

We work closely with the curriculum department, the professional learning department, the information technology department, administrators, and teachers to plan for the integration of technology into all facets of the curriculum and learning environment. Our chief goal is to promote a culture of transformative uses of technology where all Johnson City Schools' staff, teachers, and students use relevant and innovative digital tools.

During the spring 2016 semester, we began using and introducing Canvas, a fully online learning management system, to our teachers and students. This innovative tool will enhance our district's personalized learning initiative!
